I own a Sigma SD14, and live about two hours from St. Louis. LA is welcome to have the Lambs back. As long as we get to keep the cardinals and the beer, I'm good.
You're a bigger person for that. At least you're not singing the Blues.....

Similar to a lot of groups, then!

Neither my Optimistic Pessimist or Pessimistic Optimist groups have attracted anyone. I may have to merge them.

Same here. Our Pentax forum consists of about 3-4 people who still shoot Pentax and about 3-4 people who used to but just hang around, 2 of which constantly b*tch and whine about Pentax. Oh the irony, when one of those claimed Pentax was dead, and then bought (and fanboyed hard about)... a Samsung

Sadly, this forum is similar, just that first number is much larger. ☺

I'm thinking of hosting an OCD Meetup, Cynog.

I don't have it, but they might clean my house!

In 2015 I had several opportunities to do "camera sightings" in busy/popular (sometimes tourist heavy) places, but the total Pentax tally was slim: 1 K-X with kit lens at an event at a central Pennsylvania university (owner was very happy with it, talked about good value, etc.), and 1 K-3 in the Calgary airport (didn't note the lens). That's all.

Pentax is alive and well in the UK. Our trouble is getting long lenses. Check eBay & see how many are chasing kit. I have used Pentax for over 45 years. When asked Why Pentax, my answer is always the same, I don't do point & shoot. Very rarely do they say anything else.

And, a lot of us in the UK are natural " reactionaries" - so do "do" Pentax" = S* d off CaniSoNik"n - (sorry!). .

If you think you're lonely, just think about the Sigma SD1 owners, the Konica/Minolta fan club, and any city that lost their pro sport team like St. Louis. That's got to be worse than relegation. Here's are some emojis to keep you company
it's a bittersweet loss. Yeah, the Rams are gone, but then so is Kroenke.
